On Thursday, Justine. :(
That seems kind of far off, unless you are going to the dental specialist.. then it would make sense! Is he still eating and drinking okay?

I felt so bad when Abbey broke one of her upper incisors - it broke almost to the gumline and the pulp was exposed.. I wouldn't have noticed unless I had went to brush her teeth because she was eating and drinking like normal.

Ouch, Hen! I hope he isn't in too much pain from now until Thursday, why such a long wait, Felicia? :(

Is he getting an antibiotic Felicia? I'd think with the pulp exposed for that length of time they'd be giving him something.

It may sound silly, but if he seems to be in pain (I'm sure they gave you something for that, I used baby orajel (Owee liked the Grape best) but I'll warn you, its very FUNNY the first time you use it!

Yes, he's on an antibiotic prophylactically until the extraction, and he's on pain meds as well. He doesn't seem to be too uncomfortable, though he is making the most lovely cow plops of poop, due to the antibiotic, I imagine. I've been giving him a probiotic as well, to help with that.

Thursday was the first available surgery appt with our vet, it would have been another week to wait for the vet dentist.

Good thing you caught it before an abcess. We had to wait about 3 weeks to get Tank's out due to the abcess.

Owwwie! Poor Hens! That looks so painful.

Huckle broke the corresponding lower molar(I suspect on a mini greenie bone someone gave him to try). My vet said it was one of the most difficult extractions she had ever done because the tooth actually broke off when they tried to remove it.

Not sure if it was just anesthesia reaction or the fact that he got a rabbit turd stuck in the "pocket" (which I could not get it out). He whined and cried constantly....I actually had to take him to the ER twice...the second time they kept him and sedated him so he could get some sleep(and I could too).

Felicia, just so you he had no dental problems after he recovered.

Prayers coming that Hens fairs better with his extraction and recovery. I think you are definately doing the right thing. Our advise....stay away from rabbit turds!
